interpiot the tailff plank in the Des
Molnes plutfoun of 1&02 to be merely
a reiteration of and to mean no uiora
than the St. Louis plunk of 1896 ,
which recited :
> " 'Wo are not pledged to any partic
ular schedules. The question of rates
is a practical question to be governed
by the conditions of the times and ot
production. The ruling and uncom
promising principle is the protection
and development of American labor
and Industry. '
"We most earnestly regret the decli
nation of the renominatlon which the
Republicans of this district for the
eleventh time unanimously tendered
the Hon. D. B. Henderson. No official
has been more anxious to keep In
touch with and faithfully represent
the well considered Judgment of his
constituents than has Colonel Hender
son during all the long years of his
congressional career. We have faith
in his patriotism and In his personal
and political integrity ; wo are con
scious of his great mental power and
ability ; wo realize his superb leader
ship and commanding influence in gov
ernmental affairs and believe that his
withdrawal means a great loss to the
people. "
